If there is, it's not being applied on our system.

Remove it, make it inactive, it doesn't matter. If you configure a
timeout wwwoption, then you should get a timeout; if you don't, then
you should not. Unless something has changed and it's not being
applied in our system, this functionality is client side -- if you
have a timeout wwwoption in place and you view the source code of a
dynamic page, then you should see a script element with a call to the
"startTimeout" function (which is defined in common.js) and a meta
element (in a noscript element) with an http-equiv=refresh attribute,
and inactive browsers will get timed out after the configured time
has elapsed. If you don't have a timeout wwwoption configured, then
you should not see these in the source code of dynamic pages and the
browser should be able to sit inactive 'til the end of time without timing out.
